Military coats are lined up at attention, as one of fall's hottest must haves. As soon as the weather cools down you'll be coveting a warm coat accented with brass buttons, trim at the waist and perhaps a couple of epaulets at the shoulders. The military style coat is perfect for daytime as it goes as well with office wardrobes as it does with jeans or leggings for weekend jaunts about town.

Some of our picks include the Bird by Juicy Couture wool-blend military pea coat ($700 at Net-a-Porter) with its ribbed inner wool sleeve trim, brass buttoned epaulets and adorable button detailing along the half-sleeves. It will surely be a classic for many seasons. The Marc By Marc Jacobs cotton moleskin coat ($528 at is soft and at the same time heavy enough to keep you warm during the chilliest of days. I have a Marc Jacobs full-length cotton moleskin military coat from a few seasons back and I must say it has got to be one of the warmest I own. The fabulous thing about military coats is that most of them have high buttoned up collars for keeping out the wind's chill. The Sonia by Sonia Rykiel double-breasted military coat sports a dose of colorful whimsy with a purple lining ($755 at Net-a-Porter). This particular coat is guaranteed to bring on a cheery mood each time you wear it. For the British take on a military coat, Vivienne Westwood does it with true dramatic style. The waist-coat styled Anglomania military coat in gray ($385.00 at looks like it jumped straight out of a 16th century novel. I love the over-sized collar, large pocket flaps and striped ribbon detail trim. From Miss Sixty we spotted a military-style wool coat priced reasonably for $99.99 at With the double-breasted front, epaulets and high collar it will pair perfectly with jeans and boots at an extremely reasonable price.

Speaking of boots I found a couple of military-inspired boots with strap detailing to pair with a military coat. Wear tall knee-high boots with shorter length military coats. The Dana knee high leather boots, in style "Dahlia", $230.00 at in (gray or black) would look great with any of the coats featured here. Tuck leggings or skinny jeans into the knee-high boots for a long streamlined look. The shorter boot such as these fierce Marc Jacobs suede boots (Marc Jacobs tassel-detail suede boots, $1,045 at Net-a-Porter) can work with both short and long military style coats as well. Have fun and forward march with this trend for fall!
